My wife Pam and I came to La Grange to retire, but the spiritual energy and people dynamic here drew me out of retirement to be the pastor of this wonderful church!

Kantorei performs Sat. Night at Historic Casino Hall


Thanks to the foresight of the La Grange City Administrators, the Historic Casino Hall is living up to its mission of bringing the citizens of our community together.

Saturday night the St. John's School Acappella Choir, Kantorei performed to a full house and a standing ovation.  Many members of the community were able to enjoy this free concert brought to them by the First Presbyterian Church's Linda Smalley Memorial Concert Series.

While coming to hear this wonderful choir, residents of the county were able to see the inside of the newly restored Historic Casino Hall with it's long and varied history in La Grange.  This hall will host many more activities as the original founders had envisaged when it was originally constructed in 1881.

The 40 member Kantorei Choir has a history of touring internationally, having performed concert tours in Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada and many other countries.  The Choir will be leaving the Houston area for a concert tour of England and Scotland starting June 11.  They are led by Scott Bonasso who is in his sixteenth year as Choir Director and Music Teach at St. John's School.

Vacation Bible School Craft Needs

This year’s VBS theme is Adventure of the Treasure Seekers.  There will be 5 days of different crafts focusing on these main ideas for children: God loves you, God knows you, God treasures you, God forgives you and God is with you.  Our objective at 1st Presbyterian is to encourage children to discover the love of God and Jesus Christ and God’s promises to us.  If you have any of the following craft supplies at home or any that you would be willing to contribute, the VBS crew would greatly appreciate them.  We are praying that we can reach as many as 40 children in our community, so please pray with us as we anticipate a fun and meaningful ministry.

  1. Large die-cut foam letters and shapes (these often come in tubs)
  2. White craft glue bottles
  3. Clean Styrofoam meat trays and plastic bowls
  4. Any type of ribbon (fabric or otherwise)
  5. Assorted buttons, beads, rick-rack, colored plastic jewels
  6. Jumbo craft (popsicle) sticks
  7. Any colors of craft paint (opened bottles are fine)
  8. Craft paint brushes (foam and regular)
  9. Magnetic tape
  10. Different varieties of macaroni and dried beans (these can be already opened bags)
  11. Washable markers
  12. Felt squares of various colors (9”x 12”)
